Rustic, romantic apartment rental in the Tuscan hills

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Bagnone, Province of Massa Carrara, Tuscany
Looking for a romantic getaway? Come and relax in the Tuscan hills. This is a recently renovated, semi-detached (just 2 other apartments in the building) ground floor 1 bedroom apartment, just opened to the public.

Situated 5 to 10 minutes walk from the river's beautiful waterfalls, with its invitingly clear waters. The apartment is just 20 to 25 minutes (walking) from the centre of Bagnone, where you can find amazingly good value bars, restaurants, and shops.

We came for a weeks holiday and fell in love with the area immediately. Before we knew it, we were back to spend 7 months renovating this 200yr old apartment.

This is a very nice apartment that is well furnished with everything that you need. We had some problems with the electrical kicking off and had to watch what we turned on, but we managed. It is a beautiful area.
